We stayed at this hotel for two nights on our own and then joined a tour group for a third night. Check-in was reasonably friendly and efficient. I had booked a “superior” room though Booking.com and they (somewhat reluctantly) let us stay in the same room when we joined our tour. The room (1424) was decent enough except for the filthy, torn carpet. I almost thought I was back in Soviet days and the ratty Intourist hotels. Also, the curtains were thin and let in outside light (the exterior is floodlit at night). The room was fairly large, with twin beds (as requested), a TV, a refrigerator, and a closet. The bathroom was clean, stocked with amenities, and had a tub/shower combination. There was plenty of hot water available all the time. There were several English channels on the TV. The wifi signal was strong and responsive. The air conditioning worked well, although there didn’t seem to be any way to set the temperature (there were three different fan speed settings, though). There is a little traffic noise; not objectionable. Breakfast was included and was very good, with a wide selection, including cooked-to-order eggs and omelets. Lots of tour groups stay at this hotel. I’d have given it a higher rating if the carpet hadn’t been so grubby.
For an economical lunch or dinner, go around the outside of the hotel to “Gamberger”, attached to the north side of the hotel. They have outside tables and a few inside. You can get hamburgers, donars, etc. Ice cream cones are also available and you can buy cold beer here to take to your room. We also ate at the restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. The food was OK and not particularly overpriced. You can watch the sunset from there.
The hotel is adjacent to a Metro station. Go wherever you want on the Metro for 800 Som, equivalent to about $US0.40)
For a better exchange rate than offered by the hotel go see the moneychangers at the Chorso Bazaar, but make sure you’re not cheated.
